What Next?

"Abercrombie & Fitch's preppy style has made it a favorite with teens and tweens. But the fashion chain was the subject of outrage today after it released a range of bikinis for eight to 14-year-olds with padded cups. The Abercrombie Kids 'Ashley push-up triangle' top, which retails for $24.50, features thick padding in the cup to give the illusion of a larger chest size. "

Padded bikini tops for seven and eight year olds??  Isn't this almost child porn?  When are we going to stop acting like sheep and rise up against this garbage - for the sake of our world's daughters? 

I can't imagine any father letting this stand for one minute, when he sees his little girl, who still plays with Barbies and just lost a tooth, parading around in a padded bikini top.

Let this corpoation know how you feel by email or phone.  And we have GOT to be more vocal, to the point where a company wouldn't dare try to sell this crap to us, because we are finally wide awake.

  2. It would be great if we didn't see ANY of those little bikini's on little girls at the pool or beach this summer because we moms stuck together and flatly refused to buy them! It is hard not to give in to the whines and pleads "all the other girls are wearing them"..I have boys and I am guilty as charged and gave in to "BlackOps" video games to my young boys. We moms really need to support each other because it is a jungle out there.
